Amazing stay at Doubletree Universal

Great location for Universal, 20 minute walk. Large rooms clean and tidy and quiet. Excellent facilities, good restaurant and deli and Starbucks open in lobby till 3pm daily. Large firepit in outside area in the evening which is lovely whilst relaxing with a drink after a hectic day at theme parks. Lovely staff.

great location

great location once you get confident using the pelican crossings on the major road you need to cross if walking to Universal, which is a pleasant 15 minute walk. you can always use the happy shuttle bus but this takes longer due to other pick ups. lovely greeting on arrival with warm cookies and information given about local restaurants that do a cheap edible breakfast. supermarket and TGI Fridays nearby. staff friendly and excellent gym with all modern equipment. Rooms basic but clean , spacious and comfortable..

The best thing about my stay was...

location.

Clean and comfortable hotel, no complaints.

Just back from a two week stay at the Doubletree at the entrance to Universal, Orlando. The hotel bedrooms are quite roomy, clean and the beds are very comfortable. It's not a hotel you would hang around in all day but for where it's situated that is not a problem. We ate regularily at the Ale House right beside the hotel and this is reason enough to stay there as the food is brillant and great value, you can have it delivered to your room if you wish. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

The best thing about my stay was...

Clean and comfortable room.

Perfect Orlando getaway

We stayed at the doubletree for 12 nights and had the most comfortable of stays. Check in was simple and quick - the cookie was delicious and the staff were really polite and helpful. The hotel is in a perfect location across from universal Orlando and is an easy stroll to the parks. Our room was always clean and the beds so comfortable it was a hard job dragging ourselves out each morning. Millers alehouse now provide room service which is great for an evening in watching a movie. There is a charge for parking which can add up over the duration of your holiday - which is the only downside to this fantastic hotel. All in all we had a great time and will definitely return!!!

The best thing about my stay was...

The comfortable beds and hotel location

Good hotel

Room was very comfortable, spacious & nicely furnished & got great price with Alpharooms. Had views of the Universal parks. Good location, only 10 minute walk to Universal, although other parks were a 15-20 min drive away. Hotel is right beside a Walgreens store, a bar & few other restaurants. The Golden Corral restaurant close by was great value as the food in hotel is expensive although the hotel bar was nice with good selection of drinks. iHop bus service is right beside hotel although need get one to the International Drive & then another along it. There are always taxis outside although they seem bit more expensive than ones you get along the road. All in all a good hotel with good location. Would definately recommend this hotel.
